, must be because i was just so smart. there are a lot of smart people out there. bill: take us into the mind frame for a comment like that. white house would come out and argue and i imagine they will government has a purpose and that was the point the president was trying to make. the point you're making this goes back to his days a as community organizer. explain that. >> well, i think in essence when you're a community organizer you're basically dealing with a lot of people disadvantaged you're trying to get them government assistance or welfare checks or whatever and the other part of the story though is that people who are creating jobs are getting up every day and going to work and working very, very hard. this should be a campaign celebrating the american worker. his story in itself is successful story. bill: president obama. >> president obama. i think to certain extent but reflect as mindset. it is the mindset the contrast between what romney and his campaign will be about. we can again become a great leader of the world as we always have been. we can get americans bac
in chief he has the obligation to help us to solve this problem. i ask our colleagues to please support this legislation. bring transparency. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. van hollen: thank you, madam speaker. i listened carefully to what the chairman of the armed services committee said, and i didn't find much that i disagree with. we agree that we should replace the sequester. we agree that it's a mistake to create the kind of uncertainty that's out there, and obviously it has an impact not just in the defense sector, but also in all the other areas where our federal government has activities. but i would just say, and i want to make sure the chairman's on the floor now and has a chance to respond, he demonstrated some leadership on this issue. last fall, because he was asked this question, he was asked if he had to put together a plan that included some revenue, he said, yeah. i understand we got to make cuts, but i'd rather include some revenue than deep cuts to defense. in fact, what he said was,
and refrigerators and other items and they see it as, well, this president is actually doing something for us, and he is getting the votes. >> a trade off, too, because the people who are given the homes, they criticize the government, they take them away. >> well, the writing is on the wall, and every time we see one of the live shows in which the president gives away the houses, you see the people saying all of the most beautiful things that you can think of, and chavez is my commander, and he's my benefactor and so good for the people and so good, but not once have i seen anybody say anything wrong about chavez, and that tells you a lot. >> and he also recently awarded an apartment to a woman who became his 3 millionth twitter follower, and he is a big twitter follower. >> yes, he is wildly popular and the message is getting through to twitter again, and he did this, and he is rewarding somebody for being the 3 millionth follower. >> can you imagine if president obama or mitt romney were giving away homes on live television? >> no. >> thank you, miguel. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.co

, in some ways, it is not a problem. the ambush protected vehicle that they use in iraq and afghanistan, it was something that the hill prioritize because people were getting blown up by ied's. there is a proper role for congress exercising decision-making and imposing some things on executive office and institutions. how to deal with the rest? management, either. there is not a golden bullet that is going to resolve this problem permanently. something that someone will have to wrestle with on a case-by-case basis. at least my opinion is going to be that you have to hope that the governors i have already outlined are sufficient. but most of those things don't come into the budget. >> we should probably clarify that, you know, when people present in arguments, pros and cons, the majority responds favorably to both. so it is not that most people are carrying around a very discrete human of i think defense should be cut and i am looking for signs that this candidate is for organs that. it is not that articulated. it is more because they say oh, yeah, that's true, oh, okay, now have to make

on the cayman islands. so what is it mitt romney doesn't want us to know? maybe it's in the tax returns he refuses to share, or the felony he might have commitmented by making false statements about his role at bain. we understand, mitt, sometimes the truth is tricky. tricky mitt. he's not a crook, right? moveon.org political action is responsible for the content of this advertisement. >> that ad will start running tomorrow in ohio, where mitt romney is scheduled to the campaign. romney campaigned today in pittsburgh, where he tried to do a donald trump impression without ever actually using the words, "birth certificate." >> in the past, people of both parties understood that encouraging achievement, encouraging success, encouraging people to lift themselves as high as they can, encouraging entrepreneurs, celebrating success instead of attacking it and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. his course is extraordinarily foreign. >> while romney was visiting pittsburgh, celebrating his success, team obama chose to introduce a new television ad on pittsb
case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c
labott is joining us live with the very latest. bulgarians are of course investigating. i'm sure the israelis are as well. first of all, what are the bulgarians saying? >> reporter: well, wolf, forensic investigators on the scene. it's all very preliminary at this point, but they're saying that this was caused by a bus bomb already placed inside the bus. that's really all they know, but they're not ruling anything out. they say it's possibly a terrorist attack. obviously the israelis saying they're sure of it. but bulgarians not ruling anything in, not ruling anything out at this point, wolf. >> didn't take very long for the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu to directly blame iran for this attack. >> reporter: that's right. a short time ago prime minister netanyahu, wolf, put out a statement saying all signs are leading to iran, his defense minister just spoke to reporters a short time ago. let's take a listen to what he said. >> this is clearly a terrorist attack initiated by hezbollah, hamas, jihad or any other group under the terror of iran or other radical muslim g
. >> mitt romney has used every trick in the book. romney admits that over the last two years, he's paid less than 15% in taxes on $43 million in income. makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all. >> jennifer: joining me now is david cay johnston, the pulitzer prize winning journalist who covered the tax code for more than a decade for "the new york times." he's a columnist for reuters david, thank you so much for being inside "the war room." >> thank you for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. let me start with that, the inference from that action d more generally. there is a record number of high income earners who pay no federal income tax. how does that work? how do rich people avoid paying taxes. i'm assuming they're rich people. >> well $200,000 puts you in the top 3%. people avoid paying taxes by having losses that they can take, by paying taxes to foreign governments that they deduct dollar for dollar against the u.s. we don't know exactly how the 35,000 people do this and by the way, six of th
to have that debate. michael sandel, beautiful book. worth reading. thank you again. join us some other jennifer granholm. >> jennifer: i'm jennifer granholm. tonight in "the war room," hey mitt, when are you coming clean on your taxes? mitt romney still backed into a corner. shielding himself from tax questions, bain attacks and outsourcing charges. the man has run for senator governor president after campaigning for almost 20 years will mitt romney finally come clean or will he try to point in another direction any direction? >> celebrating success instead of attacking and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. >> jennifer: mitt. it didn't work then. it won't work now. we'll take down more of romney's secrets and lies tonight in "the war room." >> jennifer: the crowd at president obama's rally in san antonio, texas today had a message for his opponent yelling "show us your taxes"! and as we've reported, it is not just democrats. there is a growing chorus of republicans cla

that chris christie will not be the running mate? >> the first thing it tells us is that chris christie isn't going to be the running mate. look, i think what it tells us is they understand that chris christie is a powerful force within this party. he is someone who kind of has the charisma, the zeal that mitt romney to be frank lacks. i think they want to elevate chris christie. one other thing about chris christie i think gets lost in this, he is the speak truth to power guy, the i'm going to tell it how it is. he is also a governor elected in 2009 in a blue state. let's not lose sight of that, either, the messaging it sends that republicans can and do win in states that tend to go to democrats on the presidential level. assuming that jamie's reporting is right, i have no reason to believe it isn't -- >> jamie's reporting is always dead on. take it from me. >> i believe that christie is an intriguing and probably a great pick. i think he's going to draw a huge amount of attention and he will use this, christie will use this i think to launch himself even higher in kind of the national str

.org is asking what romney is hiding. >> what doesn't he want us to know? the felony he may have committed about his role at bain. we understand, mitt, sometimes the truth is tricky. tricky, mitt. he's not a crook, right? >> and the democratic national committee using romney's words to hit the message home. >> governor, will you release your tax records? >> if that is the tradition, i'm not opposed to doing that. most likely, i'll get asked to do that in the april time period. i'll keep that open. >> let's say good morning to the political power panel. joy reed, david goodfren and alice stort. it is great to have you here. alice, i want to start with you, romney did an interview yesterday. he was asked about the tax returns. >> people in my party say release the returns and it will go away. my experience is the democratic party has approached taxes in a different way than in the past. opposition people look for anything they can find to distort and twist and try to make negative. >> alice, you were the national press secretary for rick santorum. to release his tax returns during the primary seas
illness is important. what we learned from this program could help us in other programs of diseases coming from iraq and afghanistan. if you get a chance to visit walter reed bethesda hospital see some very strange viruses and molds and funguses that are coming from places that we never expected to see but we're seeing them now. this research program could help another research program to deal with these deadly diseases that are affecting our troops in large numbers. and so while we already give $10 million in this bill, i am going to agree with mr. kucinich and agree to his amendment to add the additional money. mr. dicks: if the gentleman will yield? mr. young: i do. mr. dicks: this gulf war illness has been something that bothered me a great deal. it's a very difficult diagnosis on what was causing this, but i think an additional investment here is worthy and i think we should accept the amendment. i'm glad the chairman accepts it. mr. young: i thank the gentleman for his comments and thank mr. kucinich for offering the amendment and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the q
. >> brown: the troubles with the u.s. economy-- and the possible fallout-- were on full display today. a task force report told of states facing ever-deeper budget holes. but the chairman of the federal reserve withheld any promise of immediate help. ben bernanke came before the senate banking committee acknowledging that the economy has suffered a series of setbacks. a slump in hiring and job growth, a slow down in manufacturing activity can reduce spending by consumers. while fighting the trend, the fed chair would not commit on if or when the central bank might act again to boost growth. >> we're looking very carefully at the economy, trying to judge whether or not the loss of moment actual we've seen recently -- momentum we've seen recently is enduring and whether or not the economy will make progress to lower unemployed and more satisfactory labor market conditions. if that does not occur, obviously we have to consider additional steps. >> senators from the two parties pushed bernanke in opposing directions. tennessee republican said the fed should take no new steps leaving it in
romney willing to show is us the money? let's see why he is so qualified based on his declaration that he is a very good businessman. let's see it, mitt. >> let's see what carl had to say on "morning joe" about this. >> to quote a book title, i think romney's taxes are a game changer. it is extraordinary to have someone running for president that won't show his tax returns. he will have to show them. >> washington post abc poll asked about the handling of the campaign and how they are dealing with it. 20% of the republicans have an unfavorable view. independents said unfavorable more than favorable. could this be what sinks his presidential ambitions? >> i think it is extraordinary that this is a controversy mitt romney's doing. republicans will only go so far about his economic success because it is fundamental to their believes. he has waited until the summer when the news cycle is slower. he has people like us who have nothing more to do than to talk about the campaign other than mitt romney and who he is. we know who barack obama is. he made this issue front and center. it is the only
that work out? >> frankly, i made a mistake. i shouldn't have used those words. and i apologize for using those words, but i don't apologize for the idea that this president has demonstrated that he does not understand how jobs are created in america. >> john sununu and the romney campaign just couldn't gain any traction with their new attacks, because there's only one thing dominating the campaign trail right now. it's all about romney's taxes. a new poll suggests americans, they want to know what is in mitt romney's taxes. 56% of voters said romney should release the last 12 years of returns. 61% of independents want to see the last 12 years. and it doesn't stop with voters. tea party icon ron paul told politico, "in the scheme of things, politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want." texas governor and alleged romney supporter rick perry had this to say. >> no matter who you are or what office you're running for, you should be as transparent as you can be with your tax returns and other aspects of your life. >> and the editors of the conservative "

do it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz start right now. >> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are 112 days until the election and breaking news on mitt romney's taxes. one of his former primary opponents is finally saying enough is enough. release the taxes. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> he has no idea how the american system functions because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something. >> the romney campaign goes into the sewer to distract from mitt romney's tax problem. but new polling proves the american people aren't buying it. >> makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all. >> michael steele and katrina on the unfolding disaster for the romney campaign. john mccain goes rogue and says sarah palin was a better candidate than mitt romney. how long until the republicans reach full revolt? i'll ask howard fineman. and bain capital is about to outsource 170 jobs from a company in freepert, illinois. but the town and the workers are fighting back. they're asking m

'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. what duo your country? be big debate nationwide because president obama is putting forth affluent americans owe the country more than they are giving. last night the president said this about business people. >> if you have got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. the internet didn't get invented on its own. government research created the internet. so then all the companies could make money off the internet. >> bill: apparently the president believes that the federal government should take more in taxes from wealthy americans and business owners because the feds make individual success possible. that of course, is some outrage. here is my take. no man is an island. everybody needs help to develop their potential, that's true. however, individual achievement is just that. barack obama did not help me develop the factor. no federal agency helped me go to college. i paid my own way. i painted houses. federal government, nothing to do with it didn't give me the paint. didn't give me the brush. didn't help me up the ladder. yes,
